Abstract

The current internship project research aims to consult and to analyse historical works and collections in Europe, centered mainly in the at Kew herbarium, England. In Kew is deposited one of the largest collections of legumes in the world and also the collection of George Bentham with various types of Chamaecrista, the group of study of the candidate. Her supervisor in the internship will be Gwilym P. Lewis who is one of the most influential taxonomists in the Leguminosae family. The close contact with him during this time surely will contribute greatly to the good scientific training. In addition to the herbarium at Kew Juliana will be consulted more 8 other herbaria in different locations in Europe. This stage of the PhD research will focus on the morphological analysis of the cited collections, aimed primarily historical review and classification of names, and the definition of species and infraspecific taxa. The compilation of all these data will enable the conclusion of the taxonomic treatment of Chamaecrista sect. Chamaecrista ser. Coriaceae, which corresponds to important chapter of her doctoral thesis. (AU)
